The Canutillo High School Student Council earned a 2022 Texas Association of Student Councils (TASC) Sweepstakes Council designation for their outstanding achievement in leadership, service and activities aimed at improving their school and community.
To achieve Sweepstakes Council designation, schools must first earn Outstanding Student Council honors and receive outstanding recognition in programs like Drugs, Alcohol, Safety and Health (DASH), Pride and Patriotism, and Energy and Environment. Schools also must submit to TASC a Community Service Report to show in-depth involvement.
“I can’t begin to express how proud I am of this group,” said Caro Lopez, the CHS Student Council advisor. “They came back from a virtual year of meetings and hit the ground running to keep our Sweepstakes title.”
This is the sixth straight year CHS has achieved Sweepstakes Council designation. Only 171 of the nearly 1,200 TASC member schools achieve this honor.
“It’s a great honor to be able to bring this award home to Canutillo,” said CHS Student Council President Leslie Reyes. “Our council worked hard on this and we are very proud to continue showcasing our amazing community.”
CHS Student Council members develop proven skills in team building, problem solving, project planning and decision making. Through their co-curricular activities, members serve their communities while strengthening their academic and civic skills.
